Tulips and other Frosting Flowers The art of Cakes with Amanda


Summer, a great time to grow your frosting flower garden. And with so many colors and varieties you’ll never have to make the same cake design twice. I thought we could focus in on a specific flower family, the daisies, and explore with inspirations from nature. Let’s try 5 different ways of piping daisies, from a cute and quick style to a detailed eye catcher. I’ll be piping my flowers on large cookies but naturally you can pipe these on any dessert that needs decorating. Continue reading

New Gluten Free M&M Cookies in the Bakery!

New: Gluten Free M&M Cookies

Since the Coborn’s Gluten Free Bakery launched this past August 2015, dozens of new, delicious and fresh products have been released from the facility located in the heart of Minnesota. This St. Cloud facility is in a completely separate bakery from Coborn’s conventional bakery to ensure zero cross contamination with gluten containing ingredients. This spring the Gluten Free Bakery staff has been hard at it again, and this time they have a new mouthwatering cookie to show for their efforts.

Brand new to the Gluten Free Bakery scene are Coborn’s first ever Gluten Free M&M Cookies. Not only are these cookies entirely Gluten Free to ensure safety of guests, they also feature hand dipped M&M’s and are made fresh to ensure guests are purchasing the best tasting cookies possible. Want to know the best part? After being tested by multiple M&M Cookie fanatics, there is virtually no taste difference between these Gluten Free M&M Cookies and the traditional Gluten Containing M&M Cookies from the Coborn’s Bakery.

After research and feedback from guests, Coborn’s realized the growing need for a Gluten Free facility in the central Minnesota area thatNew: Gluten Free M&M Cookies offers products that are fresh, and not frozen like the majority of Gluten Free products on the market. Once Coborn’s realized the great need in the area for Gluten Free Bakery goods, they went hard to work crafting the products that tens of thousands of Midwestern families now know, love and purchase on a consistent basis. Ensuring the products taste good is just half the battle for the Coborn’s Gluten Free Bakery, because in addition to fresh and great tasting products, they also want to ensure the safety of their guests. Coborn’s recognizes the detrimental effects that even the slightest level of gluten can be for guests. For that reason they are taking additional safety precautions to ensure that the Gluten Free title holds true for each and every product that leaves the bakery facility and ships to all Coborn’s locations throughout the midwest each and every morning.

Not Gluten Intolerant, but still want to try the great products? Choose from decadent sugared cake, donuts or muffins in a variety of flavors, hamburger and hotdog buns to accompany grilling season favorites, and delightful bars, cupcakes and cookies for all occasions. The Coborn’s Gluten Free Bakery section has something to delight all taste buds – whether you have a Gluten Intolerance or not. As the kickoff to summer takes place there are multiple picnics, graduation parties and other family or friend get togethers that you are sure to be attending. Before heading out for your weekend getaway pick up a package of our brand new and delicious Gluten Free M&M Cookies. Not only are they safe for Gluten Intolerant guests, but they are also truly delicious!
